Creativity In the Classroom

We are currently piloting this 2.5 hour workshop for primary school staff. It was developed by consulting with 12 teachers across 7 schools, in Clondalkin South, North & West and Adamstown. It is aimed at giving school staff an experience of being creative in a way that is beneficial, easy and complementary to the curriculum.

During the session we aim to:

  • Plant a seed of using creativity differently.
  • Show how easy and enjoyable it can be.
  • Provide ideas that you can adapt to different situations and themes.
  • Give you an experience of being creative in a way that can assist in benefiting the children’s wellbeing, be fun, easy, and complimentary to the curriculum.
  • Think of creativity/art not like a subject but a methodology through which to teach and provide fun, developmental experiences for your class and for you.

The workshop is facilitated by our project development worker, a practicing artist with many years of experience working in youth and community art.
